November 19th to 24th 2020

We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.

The days were quite different from each other. The morning of the 21st was so foggy that it left us above the clouds for awhile before engulfing us.

In comparison, the 22nd had the most incredible sunrise.

A Beaver floated past on the 24th, it seemed put out by the River Otters in the next three journals.

American Coots were seen in several areas. American Wigeon love to follow the American Coots around to pick at the food the American Coots bring to the surface.

Gadwalls were seen as well.

Little Buffleheads were seen in many locations.

Pied-billed Grebes are usually seen in many spots.

Mallards are usually seen.

Ring-necked Ducks are winter visitors.

Wood Ducks are a favourite of many people.

Flock after flock of Trumpeter Swans flew overhead.

A young Great Blue Heron gathered food around a small puddle in the farm field. After catching the food, the young Great Blue Heron would wash the food in the puddle before eating it.

Song Sparrows are usually seen.

Anna’s Hummingbirds are always available at the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders.

House Finches were at the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders.

Purple Finches were seen as well.
